most of the time yes.
the only "good" use of anonymous functions are:
- conditional code, to keep variable definition with the code that
use it, to prevent "variable not use" warnings.
- modifying some old code ..
(but most of the time a static inline function is way better,
unless you are using lots of variable from the function)
plus you'll save lots of blanks at the left of the code and lots of
lines, not using them.
